A Brief History of K. S. A. C. 

N February 9, 1858, the Kansas State Agricultural College had its inception when a 
charter was given to Bluemont Central College, a sectarian institution under the control 
of the Methoodist Episcopal Church of Kansas. Although this charter provided for 
the establishment of a classical college, it also contained the following interesting section: 

"The said association shall have power and authority to establish, in addition to the literary' 
departments of arts and sciences, an agricultural department, with separate professors, to test 
soils, experiment in the raising of crops, the cultivation of trees, etc., upon a farm set apart for 
the purpose, so as to bring out to the utmost practical results the agricultural advantages of Kan- 
sas, especially the capabilities of the high prairie lands." 

The corner stone of the new college was laid on May 10, 1859, and instruction began about a 
year later. On March 1, 1871, a bill passed the legislature establishing a State university at Man- 
hattan, the Bluemont Central College building to be donated for the purpose. The measure, 
however, was vetoed by Governor Robinson. 

On July 2, 1862, President Lincoln signed the Morrill Act, "An act donating public lands to 
the several states and territories which may provide colleges for the benefit of agriculture and the 
mechanic arts." This bill granted each state 30,000 acres of land for each senator and repre- 
sentative it had in congress and provided that the money derived from the sale of these lands con- 
stitute a perpetual fund for the operation ol at least one college which would "promote the liberal 
and practical education of the industrial classes in the several pursuits and professions of life." 

On February 3, 1873, Governor Carney signed a joint resolution passed by the Kansas legis- 
lature, in accordance with which the provisions of the Morrill Act "are hereby accepted by the 
State of Kansas; and State hereby agrees and obligates itself to comply with all the provisions of 
said act." On February 16 of the same year the governor signed an act which permanently lo- 
cated the college at Manhattan. 

The three commissioners appointed by the governor selected 82,313.52 acres of the 90,000 
granted by congress. The deficiency of 7.686.48 acres — an amount selected and found to lie 
within a railroad grant — was not made up by Congress until 1907. 

After the passage of the creative act, no subsequent legislation was enacted until the second 
Morrill Act on August 30, 1890. This act "applied a portion of the proceeds of the public lands 
to the more complete endowment and support of the colleges for the benefit of agriculture and the 
mechanic arts established under the provisions of an act of Congress approved July 2, 1862." 

The third and last act of Congress increasing the income of agricultural colleges is the Nelson 
amendment to the agricultural appropriation bill, which was approved March 5, 1907. In addi- 
tion, however, to providing for an increase in the support of these institutions from federal funds, 
the law contains the very significant provision specially authorizing the agricultural colleges to 
use a portion of this federal appropriation for the special preparation of instructors for teaching 
agriculture and mechanic arts. 

Continued growth has been evident through the entire life of the college with the exception 
of a period during the World War.

The Ideals and Aims of K. ! 

ONE important ideal of the Kansas State Agricultural College is that every person who 
comes under its influence shall thereby be helped to serve his country, his neighbors, and 
himself through well-informed action. The spirit which dominates the college is based upon 
a firm belief in the dignity of honest, intelligent work. This spirit emanates from the best ele- 
ments of American citizenship and is in accord with the best American traditions. 

To help its students to become practical is one of the principal aims of the college. It is 
not worth while to be practical unless one has high ideals. But it is futile to have high ideals 
without some practicality through which to apply them. The college recognizes that we live in 
a work-a-day world, in which mere dreaming, unrelated to action, accomplishes little. 

The student body at K. S. A. C. is justly famed for its democratic spirit. No person of high 
character, intelligence, and industrious habits needs to hestitate to join the student body because 
he lacks wealth or social position. A large proportion of the students pay their own college ex- 
penses. There are numerous high-class fraternities and sororities, but membership in them, 
however desirable, is neither a social nor an academic necessity. The Varsity football team has 
elected a non-fraternity man to the position of captain for the 1925 season. This action indicates 
something of the wholesome spirit prevailing among the students. 

The student body respects industry, ability, and sincerity. These qualities are more highly 
esteemed by students and faculty than are such superficial things as wealth and cleverness. 

The college encourages many wholesome activities in addition to those provided in the cur- 
ricula, because it believes in well-balanced development of young men and young women. It is 
proud of the records of its students in football and other athletic sports, in debating, dramatics 
music, oratorj'. and other extra-curricular activities. It believes that a prospective engineer, 
farmer, or scientist can profit by a knowledge of these activities and by participation in them; 
and that a prospective home-maker may secure benefits by taking an active and intelligent in- 
terest in the arts. It emphasizes the importance of good living and of good citizenship as well 
as that of earning a livelihood. 

A great majority of the thousands of men and women who have attended K. S. A. C. at some 
time during the past sixty years are honoring their Alma Mater by exemplifying these ideals and 
aims. These excellent men and women, living in widely distributed parts of the world, are lead- 
ing prosperous and useful lives. They have fixed a high standard of good service and good citizen- 
ship toward which the younger generation of students may well strive. The college is proud of

IN THE class of colleges to which this institution belongs the classical studies of the older type 
of college are replaced by work in the sciences and in vocational subjects. A sound basis for 
technical training includes thorough training in mathematics, physical science, and biological 
science. It is believed also that education should include some preparation for the discharge of 
one's duties to the state and to the community in which he lives. It should afford him that dis- 
cipline and culture which alone can give him a grasp of the relations among persons and activities, 
peoples and events, with breadth of view and tolerance of attitude, and hence an influence over his 
associates and fellow-citizens of every station of life. 

It is the province of the departments grouped in the division of Ceneral Science to give this 
basic, scientific, cultural and disciplinary training. Their work is not only foundational, but it 
penetrates through all of the characteristic vocational curricula of the institution, as the struc- 
cural steel of the modern skyscraper penetrates the entire building and forms a secure framework 
and support for the more readily visible, and evidently important parts. These departments thus 
give unity to all of the four-year curricula. 

In addition they give most of the required subjects in the curricula in General Science, In- 
dustrial Journalism, Industrial Chemistry, Rural Commerce and Music. These curricula carry 
opportunities for election of many courses which give great flexibility to them, and make it pos- 
sible for students to obtain many modifications that may meet individual needs. 

The departments organized in this division are Bacteriology, Botany and Plant Pathology, 
Chemistry, Economics and Sociology, Education, English, Entomology, History and Civics, 
Library, Mathematics, Military Science, Modern Languages, Music, Physical Education. Physics, 
Public Speaking, and Zoology. 

Two-thirds of the instructional work of the college is done by these departments, and a large 
fraction of I he research.

Division of Agriculture 

IN MODERN life, success usuallv comes to those who combine high personal qualities with ade- 
quate training in fundamental and technical subjects. High personal qualities are indispensa- 
ble. Training is an exceeding valuable asset which gives to those who have it a distinct ad- 
vantage over those who do not. College education enables the young man having the necessary 
personal qualities to take advantage of the fact that the well-trained man can do many things 
which are impossible to the untrained; to secure the rewards which go to him who is best fitted 
to earn them. 

These simple facts apply in the great field of agriculture as they do in all other branches of 
human activity. Agriculture utilizes the services of thousands of technically-trained men in 
at least 150 interesting and profitable occupations, on the farm, in scientific laboratories, in class 
rooms flour mills, creameries, erain elevators, packing plants, greenhouses, and many other 
places.' No field offers a greater variety of interesting and dignified occupations. 

The Division of Agriculture provides training for those who wish to devote their lives to 
agriculture the largest industry in America. The Division is admirably prepared to do its work 
well It has a large staff of high-class, well-trained teachers, and it is one of the best equipped 
agricultural teaching organizations in the world. The agricultural curriculum is we 1 balanced 
It enables the student to combine science and practice, the technical and the liberal, work and 
nlav It helps the student to make of himself a good technical and business man, a good citizen 
and a good fellow, and to prepare himself for attractive opportunities which are more numerous 
than the men who are qualified to accept them.

THE Engineering Division of K. S. the largest Engineering school in Kansas, and one 
of the largest in the middle west. Its enrollment is exceeded by only two engineering schools 
between the Mississippi River and the Pacific Coast states. It is the second largest division of 
the college, being exceeded only by the General Science Division. It includes more than one- 
fourth of all the students in the college during the regular session and more than forty per cent 
of all the young men. 

For a number of years before the war, the collegiate engineering enrollment at K. S. A. C. 
remained practically stationary at about 300 to 340 students. Following the war it rose rapidly 
and steadily, until this year it was more than 850, two and a half times as great as before the war. 

With the large increase in the number of engineering students, there has been no difficulty 
in placing in attractive positions all of the graduates, and many more could easily have been placed. 
The fact that the graduates are making good is evidenced not only by the promotions and re- 
sponsibilities given them, but also by the fact that the employers keep coming back for more of 

The four-year curricula now offered in the Division of Engineering are: (1) Agricultural 
Engineering, (2) Architectural Engineering, (3) Architecture, (4) Chemical Engineering, (5) Civil 
Engineering, (6) Electrical Engineering, (7) Flour Mill Engineering, (8) Landscape Architecture, 
and (9) Mechanical Engineering.

'ivision of Home Economics 

KS. A. C. has the honor of being the first college in the United States to establish Home Eco- 
nomic courses. The first instruction in sewing was offered in 1873, classes being held in 
Bluemont Central College. Two years later household chemistry and household economy 
were added and the classes met in what is now called the Farm Machinery hall. The curriculum 
has been expanded until at present 52 technical courses are offered within the division. 

Five hundred girls are enrolled in the Home Economics division, and an additional hundred 
from other divisions are talcing Home Economics subjects. The work is administered by a staff 
of 24 instructors and is organized under the departments of Applied Art, Clothing and Textiles, 
Food Economics and Nutrition, and Household Economics. 

Kedzie hall, the first college building in the United States to be used exclusively for Home 
Economics instruction, was built in 1897. The present Home Economics building was erected 
in 1908 and the Cafeteria building in 1921. The Ellen Richards lodge, used as a practice house 
for the students in household management courses, is located off the campus. 

A semi-centennial Jubilee, celebrating the completion of half a century of Home Economics, 
was held at the college on April 16 to 18, 1925. At that time the Home Economics building was 
officially named "Calvin Hall" in honor of Mrs. Henrietta (Willard) Calvin, 
in Home Economics from 1903 to 1908.

Division of Veterinary Medicine 

VETERINARY education in the United States has advanced with rapid strides. Originally 
a trade, it is now a science with a foundation as broad and thorough as any of the learned 
professions. As a result, it has attracted to its ranks the best of the high school graduates. 

In the United States there are eleven veterinary schools, all connected with state univer- 
sities and colleges. Like human medicine, the teaching of veterinary medicine is carried on en- 
tirely at public expense. It is recognized by the various states that prosperous agriculture de- 
pends to a large extent upon healthy live stock. 

Entrance requirements of all American veterinary colleges are virtually the same — a prelim- 
inary high school education or its equivalent. The rigid enforcement of this requirement, by 
its selective action of the best class of young men, has been instrumental, to a large degree, in 
placing veterinary medicine upon a higher professional plane, and it has prevented overcrowding. 

Veterinarians of today find lucrative employment as veterinary practitioners, state and federal 
veterinarians, as meat and sanitary inspectors, army veterinarians, research and laboratory workers, 
serum manufacturers, teachers, and many other vocations. The opportunities for the prac- 
titioner are almost without limit, because the value of live stock in the United States has in- 
creased from three billion dollars in 1900 to eight billion dollars in 1920, without a corresponding 
increase in the number of veterinary practitioners. 

The Division of Veterinary Medicine in the Kansas State Agricultural College is one of two 
veterinary schools in the middle west. Its teaching staff, equipment, and buildings are unex- 
celled, and therefore for the 1924-'25 college year it has enrolled students from fifteen different 
states and two foreign countries.

ivision of Summer Sc 

ONE of the most important problems in Kansas is to furnish to the boys and girls in the public 
schools of the state, teachers trained in the social and economic needs of Kansas. Because 
the controlling purpose in this college is to meet the social and economic needs of the state, 
it was thought wise to open its doors during the summer months to the teachers, and not 
permit this $2,000,000 investment to lie partly idle during the summer. The hearty and imme- 
diate response from the teachers proves that this was a wise move.

Per Cent, of Gain 22.2 

Among significant achievements of the summer school are these: 

1. The summer school helps to keep the state's $2,000,000 plant at work practically the year 
through, giving teachers a special opportunity to attend college during their vacation. 

2. An increase of 22.2 per cent in attendance was registered in the biennium 1923-'24 
over the biennium 1921-'22. .... 

3. Two thousand ninety-four teachers were trained who went directly into the schools ot 

4. ' The increase in the demand for community music and musical appreciation on the part 
of the' teachers of the state was met in the summer school by overtime work on the part of the 
Department of Music. .... 

5. Courses in community pageantry were continued. Every Kansas community is rich 
in historical facts and traditions and stories of the pioneers— the builders of the material and spirit- 
ual resources of Kansas. Community pageantry trains leaders for the production of pageants in 
their home communities. The summer school pioneered this work for the Middle West.

Division of Extension 

EDUCATIONAL activities are divided into three principal functions — resident teaching, 
investigational work, and extension. The two former phases are well recognized and estab- 
lished academically. The later, while not a new activity, has only been more recently recog- 
nized as a function of educational instruction although the activities for which it is responsible 
date back almost as far as the organization of the agricultural college. Practically every com- 
munity in the state is reached through the extension service, and the assistance of the col 'ege 1S 
thereby made available. It may be truly said when taking into consideration the field of Ex- 
tension Service that the campus of the agricultural college is the State of Kansas. 

The activities of the Extension Service may be said to consist of "selling" the information 
available from this institution. The resident departments are responsible for originating new 
facts of value to the people of Kansas; it is the business of the Division of Extension to get people 
to use these facts. Thus the experiment Station may be said to be the manufacturing plant ot 
the institution and the extension service the sales organization. 

Extension work had its origin when members of the resident departments conducted tarmers 
institutes where they discussed theorv as applicable to farm practices. The first farmers in- 
stitute was held at Manhattan, Kan.,' November 14, 1868. This was the first farmers institute 
ever held anywhere. <oriri , , , . .. 

Extension work was not recognized as such for many years. By 1899 the number ol insti- 
tutes had developed until there were several hundred held in Kansas each year. 1 oday Exten- 
sion Service includes the work of county agricultural agents, home demonstration agents, county 
club ngciils, and specialists. . . 

!!„■ dew ol extension work has been rapid and steady. During 1924 practically 

every community in Kansas was reached in some form of extension work of the agricultural college.

Dean of Women 

THE position of Dean of Women is based on the ideal for students of the highest physical, in- 
tellectual, moral and spiritual development. Special interests of the Dean of Women include 
the student problems involved in living conditions, health, employment, vocational guidance, 
discipline, and social and religious life. She spends much time in serving on committees, in attend- 
ing student meetings, in conference with students, parents and house mothers, but these duties 
do not express the deeper significance of her work. It is rather a service which has for its aim 
the effecting of better adjustments between students and the faculty, and the world in which they 
must live. Routine duties are the means only to the great end of the development of personality 
and character by the conscious and comprehensive adjustment of personal and group needs.

History of the Class of 192,5 

By Class Historian 

CLASS histories are a necessary evil, designed to fill the page op- 
posite the smiling faces of the class officers. Without a class 
history the page would be as blank as the faces, and that would be an 
excess of empty space. So the historian has endeavored to fulfill 
the duties of the office, as she promised, and write some imposingly 
long words for the page, which might impress the underclassmen. 

It is generally customary to say something about being the most 
brilliant class that ever ruled the hill. A historian generally men- 
tions the one hectic class meeting of the freshman year, the great 
visions of future greatness conceived in the sophomore year, the great 
honors attained in the junior year, and the sadness of parting at the 
end of the senior year. And one always ends with that lifted note 
of hopefulness that the future will hold marvelous opportunities. 

Looking back over four years of college life, the only thing one 
can find which truly distinguishes the class of 1925 from all the classes 
preceding it is the one fact that we subscribed unanimously as fresh- 
men to the first stadium drive, and our college generation has lived 
to see a partial fulfillment of the promise to which we contributed. 

For the most part we have flunked and drawn down E grades and 
had parties and class meetings and attended college functions just as 
all preceding classes have done. We will not claim any laurels for 
our unusual originality or outstanding ability, because we know that 
we do not have any such qualities. We have had good times and 
bad times in college, and we can only wish for future classes as much 
pleasure and real value from college life as we feel that we have secured. 

And as for the future — it looks cold and unsympathetic at times, but 
thrillingly interesting. Although we have enjoyed college immensely, 
we don't regret leaving at all. There is too much ahead of us for sor- 
rowful backward glances.

History of the Class of 1026 

By Class Historian 

WE DO not hide the fact that once we were fresh- 
men — innocent, unsophisticated freshmen. In 
the fall of '22 we were glad to admit it. Now we are just 
ready to enter on our last year of college life before 
catching hold of the handrail of the graduation band 
wagon. Some of us have dropped out, but new ones 
have taken our places. 

In athletics, politics, debate and social life the juniors 
have played their role. A very large class will become 
Seniors of '26 to carry on the work left by their suc- 

Many plans have been made for the Junior-Senior 
prom and it is expected to be one of the best ever given.

History of tlie Class of 192,7 

By Josephine Heath and Agnes Remick 

As Freshmen in innocence we pondered, 
On joys the coming years would bring; 

If by following the sage advice rendered 
By those whose praise we sing. 

Our second year as Sophs 

Makes us blase, worldly wise. 
Now we're started really well 

On that road where knowledge lies. 

We note the progress of the class, 

The change from past to present, 

And pride ourselves on the stream of thought 
Which once was effervescent. 

But as we glance toward yonder hill, 

Which we have yet to climb, 
We're thankful that we're only Sophs 

And now can end this rhyme.

History of the Class of 192,8 

By Class Historian 

"We're here in college, 
We're here for knowledge — 

Well, maybe we're here for fun." 

ON THE eighth of September, 1924, the former students and 
faculty of K. S. A. C. were confronted with a new class. From 
every quarter of Kansas they came, representing Kansas' best. It 
is only natural that good students should gravitate towards a good 
school and this case has proved no exception to the rule. The Aggie 
traditions and the "old Aggie fight" have become realities to these new 
students and are having their part in influencing these seekers of 

The Freshman class has made a good showing during its first 
year at K. S. A. C. It has enthusiastically entered into all college 
activities and was well represented in them. The Freshman foot- 
ball squad could always be counted upon to furnish the Varsity squad 
a good scrap. In basketball, the Freshmen had an equally strong line- 
up and will no doubt be well represented on the Varsity team next 
year. In literary activities the Freshmen were also active and made 
some of the literary societies with creditable showing. The class of 
'28 also made itself known in a dramatic way. Quite a number of 
its members were taken into Purple Masque and a Freshman girl had 
the feminine lead in the Fall play. 

The Class of '28 has made a good beginning and it is expected it will 
take an increasingly important role in affairs on the hill in the days 
to come. Any class that has made itself felt as strongly as this one 
has is bound to be one of the very best.

ent Self=Governing Association 

r ipHE purpose of the Student Self-Governing Association is to place the control 
^- and advancement of student interests and activities in the hands of the student 
body itself, with the firm belief that this arrangement will cause an increased 
self-control resulting in higher ideals and co-operation, and that officers of suf- 
ficient wisdom and maturity can be found so that appeal to college authorities 
shall be unnecessary. 

The value of the S. S. G. A. at this school is somewhat hindered by the fact 
that proper student interest is not manifest in the organization. Regardless of 
this fact, however, the organization is practically indispensable on the hill. 

Every year the S. S.'G. A. has charge of publishing and distributing the stu- 
dent directories. This year 3,500 copies were printed and distributed free to 
students and others from whom requests for copies were received. 

One of the most popular actions of the S. S. G. A. this year was its request 
of the faculty council for an Easter vacation. Some little difficulty was encoun- 
tered when the request was first made for the spring holiday, but after the an- 
nual Roughneck day and Campus Cleanup day were taken off the calendar, the 
faculty council and president agreed to the request of the student organiza- 

Perhaps the largest single affair of the S. S. G. A. this year, and the one 
which did K. S. A. C. the most good was the meeting of the Mid-West Student 
conference here on April 30, May 1 and 2. The convention was brought to 
K. S. A. C. entirely through the efforts of Jerry Dowd and Harold Gillman, dele- 
gates to last year's convention at Knoxville, Tenn. Two schools, Tulane Uni- 
versity of New Orleans and K. S. A. C, were making high bids for the conven- 
tion. The former offered an almost unbeatable gala of entertainment for the 
delegates. K. S. A. C. had very little to offer out of the ordinary along this line. 
Through the untiring efforts of our delegates, together with a splendid recom- 
mendation from the delegates of our sister school, the University of Kansas, the 
convention was granted to Kansas. 

Delegates from 32 of the larger state universities and colleges in the middle 
west attended the conference. Among the many forms of entertainment planned 
for the delegates was a trip to Fort Riley, where a riding show and artillery re- 
view were presented by national army troops. 

In addition to the usual budget made for the distribution of the funds ob- 
tained from the student activity tickets, the budget this year contained an ap- 
propriation of $500 to be spent for publicity for the college. Prof. C. E. Rogers, 
of the department of industrial journalism, has had charge of this publicity work 
and has sent out a great deal of news matter, prepared in type form, ready for 

The various committees of the council have functioned in such a manner 
that it is complimentary to their chairmen. 

The S. S. G. A. has had a successful year during the 1924-'25 administra- 
tion. With increased interest on the part of the student body, this organiza- 
tion should be invaluable next year.

The American Society of Mechanical Engineers is a national organization of men engaged 
in the profession of engineering and mechanical construction. To further extend its sphere of 
usefulness, the society has established student branches in accredited engineering schools, each 
branch being under the jurisdiction of the society. 

The student branch of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers was established at 
the Kansas State Agricultural College in 1917. Meetings of the branch are held semi-monthly 
and consist of discussion of current problems and talks by prominent men.

The Dairy Club was organized in 1914 for the purpose of promoting interest among its mem- 
bers in the field of Dairy Husbandry. Meetings of the club are held the second and fourth Mon- 
day nights of the month. They consist of an interesting and instructive program, which per- 
tains to (he dairy industry, followed by a short business session. The program is usually fur- 
nished by members of the club. However, men of prominence in any of the phases of dairying 
are secured whenever possible.

The Dairy-Judging Team for 1924 competed in national contests held at 
the Dairy Cattle congress, Waterloo, Iowa, and at the National Dairy show which 
was held at Milwaukee, Wis. The team placed eighth at the Dairy Cattle 
congress and ninth at the National Dairy show where twenty-four teams were 
entered. At Waterloo, W. J. Daly was fourth high individual. 

In preparation for these contests the team visited some of the best herds 
in northern Iowa and Wisconsin. 

K. S. A. C. has had a wonderful record at the National Dairv show being 
the only team which has ever won the contest for three consecutive years. This 
record is due largely to the consistent and able efforts of Prof. H. W. Cave who 
is nationally recognized as a leader in collegiate judging work. Though this year 
the team did not win, yet they were well above average for all the colleges repre-

organization in 1921. , . , . ■ • i 

The purpose of the club is to improve the livestock industry, promote better educational 
facilities in this branch of agriculture and advance animal husbandry as a profession. Meet- 
ings arc held the fust and third Tuesdays of each month. They consist of a short business ses- 
sion, 'followed by an interesting program relative to the livestock industry.

The Ag Fair was organized in the spring of 1920 for the purpose of unit- 
ing the departments of the Ag Division in one central effort and so create a 
spirit of unity and co-operation among the individual students. It has also 
proven to be of much educational value, as it gives students experience which 
can be used in putting on county fairs and various other community organiza- 
tions of which agricultural graduates are often put in charge. The Ag Fair is 
the one big enterprise in which every Ag student takes an active part.

gives two or more mixers each year, takes care of all business common to the 
whole division, and has as its purpose the fostering of all activities of the Agri- 
cultural division. 

The Association sponsors three main projects: the annual Agricultural Fair, 
the publication of the Kansas Agricultural Student, and the giving of medals 
to all members of inter-collegiate judging teams.

The Agricultural Economics Club was organized in 1921 for the purpose of furthering the 
professional and social interests of its members and to foster a closer relationship and spirit of 
co-operation between the students and the faculty of the department. 

Active membership is limited to undergraduates majoring in the Department of Agricultural 
Economics. Honorary membership includes graduate students majoring or minoring in Agri 
cultural Economics and faculty members of the department.

THE Class of 1925, represented by the Staff of the Royal 
Purple, prompted by a desire to perpetuate the mem- 
ories and spirit of its college days, humbly submits this resume 
of the school year 1924-'25 to the student body. 

Since our school always has been represented by good 
yearbooks, the staff has not attempted to revolutionize the 
order, arrangement and other properties to any great extent. 
However, a few new ideas of arrangement and balance have 
been incorporated into the annual which we hope will gain 
the approval of its readers. An Egyptian motif has been used 
throughout. The cover, the opening pages, the division 
pages, the borders and the beauty section have been designed 
with the idea of carrying out this idea. 

With the vision of a book worthy to carry the honored 
name of the Kansas State Agricultural College has been born 
the incentive to greater effort. The result, you, as readers, 
alone may judge. If public opinion pleases to pass with favor 
upon our humble efforts, we shall consider this book a fitting 
tribute to our Alma Mater.

THE FIRST college paper, a four-page weekly, was published 
in 1896, under the name of the Student Herald. It became the 
Kansas Agriculturalist in 1913, and in 1914 the first issue of the Kan- 
sas State Collegian was published. This change made it a semi-week- 
ly paper and the official college publication. 

This year the increasingly large number of students enrolled 
in Journalism made necessary a new plan of operation which was 
inaugurated at the beginning of the second semester. The editorial 
responsibility was divided between an editor-in-chief and a man- 
aging editor, and the reportorial organization was completely re- 
vised. Now all students enrolled in Journalism practice are reporters, 
and the number of departmental editors has been increased so that 
every student in the journalism department may have opportunity 
for experience in the publication of the paper.

The Brown Bull, the only humor publication of K. S. A. C, was established 
in 1920. It is published jointly by Theta Sigma Phi and Sigma Delta Chi, 
journalistic fraternities for women and men, respectively. From its first issue, 
the Brown Bull has shown consistent progress and improvement in the quality 
of its humor and art. 

This year the circulation has been 1,500 copies for each of the four issues. 
The humor and the art are almost entirely the work of members of the two jour- 
nalistic fraternities and contributed by students and faculty of the college. 

The Brown Bull ranks with the best of college humor publications, and is 
quoted by other college publications as well as national humor magazines.

Department of Military Science 

THE Reserve Officers' Training Corps is organized under authority of the National Defense 
Act, with the primary object of providing systematic military training at civil educational 
institutions for the purpose of qualifying selected students of such institutions for appoint- 
ment as Reserve Officers in the military forces of the United States, and the secondary object of 
providing basic military training for those who do not complete the advanced course. 

The advanced course has for its object: 

(a) A good general education. 

(b) A good special education in the academic requirements of the branch concerned. 

(c) A well-disciplined body and mind. 

(d) Basic and special military training pertaining to the branch concerned. 

The ultimate purpose of the course is to produce men of self-confidence and aggressive lead- 
ership, capable of clear, quick thinking, and the faculty of concise, logical expression.

yN ORDER that K. S. A. C. might maintain her position among the Missouri Valley schools 
1 as a leader in R. O. T. C. work, it was decided in 1923 to elect an Honorary Colonel from the 
Co-Eds of the school. The election of the Honorary Colonel was limited to the advanced 
course students. 

In the spring of 1924, in order to foster more competition among the cadets, it was decided 
that each battalion would be permitted to elect an honorary Major. This election was open to 
all men enrolled m Military Science. 

Miss Lucile Herr was elected Honorary Colonel, while Misses Virginia Reeder Maxine Ran- 
som, and Laureda Thompson were chosen as Honorary Majors for the three battalions.

IT HAS been found that in order to successfully cope with an emergency, it is necessary that we 
prepare ourselves for that emergency, so far as we are able, before it comes. 
Nature has established a rule that only the fittest may survive. Therefore, in order that we 
may survive, we find that we must provide a defense against those forces that tend to destroy 
us. This holds true in all matters, hence, it is true of nations. This, then, is the basic reason for, 
''In time of peace prepare for war." 

In all corporations, it is an established fact, that in order to make for efficiency, it is neces- 
sary to place in the various positions those who by their inclinations are the more nearly fitted 
for the positions. 

This holds true of an army as well. We find that an army is composed of members of every 
profession and vocation.

iUR Regular Army constitutes the permanent military force of our country. Its present 

authorized strength is 12,000 commissioned officers and 12.5,000 enlisted men. The infantry 

branch is composed of 2,300 officers and 45,000 enlisted men. The remainder of our 5,000,000 

men in case of another major emergency will be officered by the members of our Officers' Reserve 


The functions of the Infantry of the Regular Army are to provide: 

(a) Garrisons for the continental frontiers of the United States. 

(b) A covering force in case of a major war. 
A small, highly trained and completely equipped expeditionary force. 
Overseas garrisons. 
A national police force.

THE Act of Congress, approved June 4,1920, which amends the National Defense Act, approved 
June 3,1916, authorizes for the first time the formation of veterinary units of the R.O. T. C. 

The veterinary unit at K. S. A. C. is divided into two courses, the basic course, for fresh- 
men and sophomores, which deals with the elements of military science and the theory of tactics, 
and the advance course for juniors and seniors. This course deals with military hygiene, functions 
of the veterinary service of the medical department and Medico-Military Administration, with 
special reference to hospitals and hospitalization for animals.

THE work of the staff at K. S. A. C. includes everything from handling of the equipment 
to stenography. At times the non-commissioned officers have been called upon to in- 
struct in the regular R. O. T. C. work. In this way they have all become well acquainted 
with the students at the college. 

Some of the duties which are taken care of by these men are student records, all reports 
and correspondence, in charge of target range, custodian of artillery material, in charge of pay 
vouchers and service records, handling of mail, help keep check of government property and 
other detail work.

BECAUSE of the nature of his duties, a Coast Artilleryman must be a combination of the Engi-

from those students who have elected the Engineering profession. Therefore, we find here 
at K. S. A. C. a unit composed of engineers who are the potential commanders of the "Big Gun 
Corps" of the future. Here are the men who will supervise the building of railroads for the 
transportation of those guns; here are the men who will direct the installation of the Electrical Fire 
Control Instruments. Here are the men who will supervise the building of those same big guns.

THE function of the infantry units in our colleges and universities is to turn out graduates 
into the organized reserves, first as second lieutenants and later in the higher grades to re- 
place the members of our Officers' Reserve Corps who are falling bv the wavside for one 
cause or another. 

The principal offensive weapons of the infantry are the rifle and bayonet. These are reinforced 
by the automatic rifle and machine guns, which are most effective on the defensive. The 37 mm 
gun, the three-inch trench mortar, and the tank deal with the resistances which are protected 
against the effects of the rifle. 

Each of these weapons, with the exception of the tank, is studied in the R. O. T C.

e Team 

COMPETITIVE rifle-firing brings out the finest 
qualities of an individual's character. It is a 
real builder of character. Usually the best shots are 
good students, clean in habits, good sportsmen, in- 
dustrious, and possessing great confidence in themselves. 
Their physical condition must be excellent. One pos- 
sessing these qualities can always develop into a good 
rifle shot. 

K. S. A. C. always has been well represented in 
this branch of sports. The year 1924-'25 is no ex- 
ception. In competitive firing with the best teams of 
the country, K. S. A. C. won two-thirds of its matches 
and placed fourth in the seventh corps area inter-col- 
legiate match, thereby winning a chance to compete 
in the national inter-collegiate match. This match 
has not been completed but from the scores turned in 
so far we are assured of a very high standing. Last 
year this school placed fifteenth in the Hearst Trophy 
match with 104 of the leading schools of the country. 
The scores for the Hearst match this year are higher 
than those of last year. As yet the final results have not been made known. 
Ernest Miller, '25, team captain, deserves much credit for the excellent ex- 
ample and shooting pace which he set for the team. His loss this year, due to 
graduation, will be keenly felt. Other team members who are deserving of spe- 
cial mention for their scores are V. C. Hill, D. C. Taylor, Cecil Walt, E. E. How- 
ard, T. H. Long, R. L. Roberts, and O. K. Correll. The other men on the team 
had less experience and although their scores are not of the highest quality, their 
work was commendable. 

Three medals, gold, silver, and bronze, respectively, were awarded to the 
three team members making the highest total scores for the season. They were 
awarded as follows: Gold medal, V. C. Hill; silver medal, D. C. Taylor; bronze 
medal, Cecil Walt. 

At the close of the season sweaters were awarded to the ten high-point men 
of the team. They were V. C. Hill, D. C. Taylor, Cecil Walt, T. H. Long, E. 
Miller, R. L. Roberts, O. K. Correll, E. Martin, N. Meek, and E. E. Howard.

Michael F. Ahearn 
Director of Athletics 

JUST twenty years ago "Mike" started in Aggie athletics. In 1905 he was 
head coach of three major sports, at the same time teaching in the depart- 
ment of horticulture. Four years ago he was placed by the Board of Adminis- 
tration at the helm of Athletics, and it has been due to his efforts that the Aggie 
ship has made clear sailing. 

For three years he has been a representative to the National Football Rules 
( ommittee. Until two years ago he was the only representative from west of 
the Mississippi river. His membership on this important committee indi- 
cates the high rank the Aggie director holds in the world of sport.

IN THE two years that he has coached Aggie basketball and baseball teams he 
has won a firm hold upon the affections of Wildcat followers. An achieve-

undisputed possession of the cellar, from the bottom of the Valley standing to 
an even .500 percentage. This year his team ranked among the best in the 
Valley and defeated the Kansas Jayhawkers, twice Valley champions, by an 
overwhelming score. His men delight in working for him and his teams are 
characterized by their teamwork, speed on the floor, and their accuracy in pass- 
ing and shooting.

e beason 

HPHE 1924 Missouri Valley football season was characterized by an unusual 
-^ number of good, very evenly matched teams. No team went through the 
entire season without a defeat. Missouri, with a team made up of veterans, 
captured the Valley title, losing but one game, that with Nebraska, of the six 
conference contests on her schedule. 

The Nebraska Huskers with practically an inexperienced 
team, after losing their first game to the Oklahoma Sooners, 
won the remaining three Valley games on its schedule and 
captured second place. Third place was won by the Drake 
Bulldogs who, out of five Valley games, lost one, tied one, 
and won three. Washington University was the only team 
that did not win a Valley contest. 

The standard of play in the Valley 
was high. Missouri opened her season by 
journeying to Chicago and defeating 
the Stagg warriors who won the Big 
Ten conference title. Ames tied Minne- 
sota University 7-7 but lost to Wisconsin, 17-0. 

Two teams played inter-sectional games. On Turkey 
Day the Nebraska Cornhuskers defeated the Oregon Aggies 
in the last quarter, 14-0. Missouri lost a game on Christ- 
mas day, at Los Angeles, to the University of Southern Cali- 
fornia, 20-0. 
A bright spot of the season's contests that will ever be 
remembered by Aggie witnesses is the defeat of the Kansas 
Jayhawker on Dad's Day. After battling for almost three 
quarters, always with a slight advantage but lacking the punch 
at a time when it was possible, the Aggies tasted victory when 
right halfback Don Meek picked up a Jayhawker fumble and 
raced 67 yards for the only touchdown 
of the game. 

Out of the 8 games on the schedule 
the team won three, lost four and tied 
one. Considering that the squad was, 
in the main, inexperienced, the season 
can be regarded as successful. The spirit of fairness, good 
fellowship, and co-operation, prevailing|among the men and 
coaches, and the experience gained by the 14 sophomores 




awarded letters means much to the future of Aggie football.

THE Aggies opened the season with a 23-0 win over Washburn College at Topeka. A 
special train was chartered to take the band and about 300 rooters to view the team in the 
first game of the season. The game was a good one to show the ability under game con- 
ditions of candidates for the team and gave all the new men a chance to get a little experience 
before they entered into the heavy Valley schedule. 

The Aggie scores came from two touchdowns by Mildrexter, one by Havley, two goal kicks 
after touchdown by Cochrane, and a drop kick by Cochrane. 

After six minutes of play the Aggies, by a series of passes and line bucks mingled with a few 
end runs, advanced the ball to within five yards of the Washburn goal line. Two line bucks by 
Mildrexter took the ball across for the first score. 

Two more touchdowns were added in the second and third quarters and then Bachman made 
substitutions rapidly, giving practically every man on the squad a chance to play. 

The defense of the Aggie squad was a feature. The line held the lighter Topeka team almost 
at will and numerous times tackled the Washburn backs for losses. During the game the Icha- 
bods made 42 yards from scrimmage and lost 55 yards. The game brought to light the ability 
of several good backfield men. The work of a number of sophomore backs, among them Haveley, 
Hoffman and Feathers was outstanding.

Kansas Teachers 6=== Aggies io 

A , 

IT TOOK sixty minutes of real football fight to conquer the fast, heavy proteges of Bill Hargiss 
from Emporia. Both teams fought to the limit throughout the game and at no time did the 
Teachers show the least sign of letting up. With the score 13-0 against them the Normals 
started a rush in the second half, that, had it not been for a fumble, might have changed the 
result of the game. 

Although the Aggies were against the wall several times, they managed to pull through with 
straight football, showing a reserve that indicated the strength of the line. 

In the second quarter of the game the Aggies started a march down the field that carried 
them to the Normal's one-yard mark, but a fumble cost a touchdown. Later in the same period 
another by way of the aerial route and some line bucks by Mildrexter placed the ball across the 
Teachers' goal. In this same frame a brilliant run by Captain Munn, after receiving a pass from 
Butcher on the 20-yard line, netted the second Aggie counter. 

Coach Bachman again started the use of the forward pass and out of eight passes attempted 
the Aggie squad completed five. 

In the fourth quarter each team scored a touchdown. The Emporia counter was gained when 
Cochrane's punt was blocked on the three-yard line and the ball given to the Teachers on a pen- 
alty. Three line bucks put the ball across the Aggie goal line. Emporia failed to kick goal. 

The last Aggie counter was made by Hofifman, left halfback, who made a beautiful 25-yard 
broken field run through the entire Normal team. 

The Aggie passing combination worked well in this game, five of the eight passes attempted 
being completed.

THE Aggies opened their Valley schedule by defeating Kansas U. 6-0 in a hard-fought game 
that kept 14,000 spectators keyed to a high, nervous pitch throughout. It was the first 
defeat handed the Jayhawkers since 1906 and broke the succession of tie games that had 
been played the two previous years. 

Donald Meek, right half, playing his first game of Aggie football, made the touchdown after 
a 67-yard run. Thirteen minutes from the end of the game, Zuber, 215-pound half-back of the 
K. U team, was tackled by Krysl, Aggie righc tackle, and fumbled the ball. Meek, running .into 
the play, snatched the ball off the ground and sped on to the goal for a touchdown. Cochrane 
tailed to kick goal on the try for point. 

The Aggies clearly outplayed the opposing team in every phase of the game, with the ex- 
ception of punting. The summary of the game shows that the Aggies made nearly double the 
number of first downs made by the Jayhawkers. 

A big factor in the victory was the Aggies' strong reserve force and the strategy of Coach 
iSacnman in knowing when to use this reserve. 

A feature of the game was the way the lines of the two teams held fast whenever their goals 
were threatened The work of Captain Munn, Ballard, Krysl and Harter in the line was out- 
standing m the Aggie play. Several times in the fourth quarter the K. U. team started to staee 
a comeback, but always the Aggie line and backfield had the power to stop them Twice K U 
fumbled when it was costly. The game ended with Ballard, left tackle, tearing through the Kan- 
sas line and downing /uber for a 15-yard loss.

OUTSCORED but not outplayed by the "Missou" Tiger, the Aggies met their first defeat 
at Columbia by a score of 14-7. Both teams scored in the first half and until the final min- 
utes of the last period the game looked as though it might be a tie. The Aggies took the 
offensive from the start of the game and continued to be on the offensive, scoring five minutes af- 
ter the second quarter started. 

Late in the same period Missouri, taking the ball well back in her own territory, started an 
offensive that took her across the Aggie line. Two forward passes, one for 54 yards and another 
one for 25, earned the first Tiger counter. 

The third quarter was fought almost entirely in mid-field, neither team having any advan- 
tage. In the fourth quarter the Aggies again scented victory and after a series of line bucks and 
end runs had the ball in Missouri territory. Then a pass, Hoffman to Doolen, was called. It fell 
into the arms of Clyde Smith, Missouri center, who raced along the side-line to within a couple 
yards of the goal line, where he was tackled by Feathers, Aggie fullback, who had cut in across 
the field to get the Missouri center. Two charges by Captain Bond gave Missouri the winning 

Against the 12 first downs made by the Wildcats, Missouri made but 3. From scrimmage 
the Aggies gained 247 yards, while the best the Missourians could do was 12.S yards. 

Throughout the entire game the work of the Aggie line and backfield 
after time they held the heavy Missouri backfield for downs.

IT WAS the upset of the season when the Ames team trounced the Purple and White warriors 
by the overwhelming score of 21-0 on Stadium Field. Overconfidence and staleness might 
have had something to do with the play of the Aggie team, but the fact remains that the Iowans 
displayed a brand of ball that took the Wildcats off their feet and surprised the 5,000 fans who 
witnessed the game. 

The Ames team scored in every quarter, using every possible means of counting up points — 
touchdowns, try for points after touchdowns, field goals, and safeties. 

The first score was made on the kick-off. Roberts kicked off for Ames, the ball landing be- 
hind the goal line and bouncing back into the field. Mildrexter, fullback, snatched the ball and 
carried it back across the goal line, thinking that he was making a touchback. In this quarter 
the Aggie men made some good gains, but a fumble at a crucial moment lost them the ball and never 
again did they have the opportunity to score. 

In the second quarter Ames started off with a rush, carrying the ball down into the danger 
zone in the first few minutes of play. A pass, Roberts to Nave, netted a touchdown. Later 
in this quarter Roberts made a place kick from the 26-yard line. 

In the third quarter fast, shifty running by the Behm brothers and line bucks by Palin, 
Ames' fullback, netted the Iowans another counter. Another place kick by Roberts in the fourth 
quarter ended the scoring. 

The work of the Behm brothers featured. Time after time they reeled off long runs around 
the end or squirmed through holes in the line. The work of these men had much to do with the 
victory of their team.

ALTHOUGH outplaying the Drake Bulldogs in every branch of the game, the Aggies lost the 
game with the valley leaders by a score of 7-6. The Drake touchdown was the result of a 
disputed decision by Umpire Denny. Anderson, playing quarter and safety for the Aggies, 
attempted to catch a punt on a pick-up, but missed the ball when it took a freakish bounce to 
his right. Lingenfelter, Drake end, recovered the punt and, although tackled by Anderson, 
shook off the safety and raced 25 yards to a touchdown. Umpire Denny ruled that the ball 
touched Anderson when it bounded away from him and that therefore the score was legal. Ore- 
baugh kicked goal for the Bulldogs. 

To Ray Smith, Aggie left half, goes the credit for scoring the Wildcats' touchdown and play- 
ing the most outstanding game of his career. It was his accurate passing, his consistent line 
plunges for long gains and his effective punting that aided the Aggies in completely outgaining 
their opponents. 

The Aggie touchdown came in the first part of the second period when the Wildcats started 
a drive from midfield. A pass, Smith to Doolen, netted 30 yards. Wilson tore through the Drake 
line for nine yards. Whitfield hit the line for two more, and first down. Then Smith on the next 
play went off tackle for a touchdown. McGee failed to kick goal and the score stood 7-6. 

A summary of the game shows that the Aggies gained a total of 334 yards against 241 made 
by Drake. During the game the Wildcats earned 14 first downs and the Bulldogs 9. Also in 
passing and punting the Aggies held the advantage.

Nebraska 2,4— Aggies o 

NINE thousand spectators saw the Aggies and the Huskers battle fiercely Homecoming day, 
for two quarters, neither team having any advantage. In fart, the summary at the end 
of the second quarter showed that both teams lost more yardage than they had gained. 
In the first half both teams presented impregnable defenses. It was not at all uncommon 
for the carrier of the ball to be downed anywhere from two to six yards behind the line of scrim- 

Near the end of the half Bloodgood, Husker quarter, seeing that his team might not make the 
required yardage in four downs, dropped back and booted a perfect field goal from the 37-yard 

At the beginning of the second half the Aggies started a rally, but it was not long-lived. 
Nebraska tightened and held for downs. Then Locke, speedy Husker half, taking the ball at 
short-punt formation, executed a beautiful run for 70 yards and the first touchdown. 

In the last quarter Nebraska opened up with a series of long passes that completely surprised 
the Wildcats. Two long passes were completed, each netting a touchdown. And each time the 
try for point was successful. 

The Aggie line, though clearly outplayed, did not fail to contribute generously to the high- 
powered nature of defensive play, and time and time again the Wildcat forwards cut through 
to throw the Nebraska backs for sizable losses. 

In this game five Aggies, Captain Munn, Hutton, Harter, Doolen and Butcher, played their 
last game on Stadium field. The work of these men has been outstanding in Valley circles.

ESTING the Sooners in every department of the game the Aggies were unable to get anything 
better than a 7-7 draw with Bennie Owen's Oklahomans. It was the Aggies' advantage in 
every quarter. In the first period they gave it away. An Aggie pass, Smith to Doolen, 
was called. In the four years that this particular pass has been used it has never been inter- 
cepted. Smith caught the ball, flipped it yards from its mark squarely into the hands of Lamb, 
Oklahoma halfback, who tucked the pigskin under his arm and sprinted 40 yards down the side- 
lines for a touchdown. 

The Aggies had entire command of the rest of the game. The pass was used consistently 
and it gained yardage, but failed to annex points. 

Although threatening to score in every period, it was not until the final frame that the Wild- 
cats managed to cross the Oklahoman's line. A number of end runs and passes brought the ball 
down to the seven-yard line. Here Smith made the remaining distance on an off-tackle play. 

The work of Feather, Aggie fullback, was outstanding. In the second half he took the ball 
from the Aggie 34-yard line to the Oklahoma five-yard line almost unaided. Time after time he 
drove off tackle for consistent gains. On the Oklahoma five-yard mark Meek was given the ball 
on a wide end run, but the Aggie linemen failed to stop Smoot, big Oklahoma tackle, who nailed 
the Aggie half 15 yards behind the line of scrimmage. 

A summary of the game shows that the Aggies earned 20 first downs to four earned by the 
Sooners. In yardage the Aggies greatly outdistanced the southerners, making a total of 232 
yards from scrimmage while the Owenites made 113 yards. Out of 21 attempted passes the Aggies 
completed nine for a total of 92 yards. The Sooners completed two passes which netted them 36

THE Wildcats finished the season in a tie for third place with Washington 
University, each having won 10 and lost 6 games. In number of points 
scored the Aej ies stood highest in the valley with a total of 472. Oklahoma was 
next with 463 and Kansas University was third. Of the six defeats, four occurred 
on the home court. The team away from home seemed not to be bothered with 

nervousness, which at times afflicted its members on 
the home court, and won six out of the eight games 
played on the road. 

I Bunker, midget forward, was high point man 

of the Aggies and lacked but three points of leading 
Jfpfl all the valley scorers. Byers, forward, and Tebow, 

Bw yjf | HI center, were among the seven leading valley scorers. 
Tebow made the record of scoring the most points 
in any one valley game. Against Missouri he caged 
nine field goals and 6 free throws for a total of 24 
^ The season opened with the Huskers on the 

V Aggie court. The bod} contad style of defense 

tjj^*' used by the Nebraskans seriously handicapped the 

Wildcat offensive and they collected but 11 points, 
while the larger, taller Husker five gathered 23. 

Then what the Valley thought impossible hap- 
pened. The Aggies journeyed to Lawrence and 
defeated the mighty Kansas five by the decisive 
score of 40-28. At the first of the game the Kansas five got a lead of six points. 
But this advantage apparently was only stimulus that set the Aggie aggrega- 
tion to working. Once it started it was never stopped. At the end of the first 
half the score was 17-14 in favor of the Wildcats. Coach Allen tried numerous 
combinations to stop the steady scoring Wildcats, but to no avail. 

With five minutes to play and the score 32-16 . _ ^_ 

in favor of the Corsaut men, Aggie subs were sent 
in to finish the game. 

The Wildcats had little difficulty in calming 
teams from Ames and Drake which came down the 
next wick. The first half of the Ames game was a 
sec-saw affair ending at a balance of 13-13. In the 
lasl half the Aggie combination got together and 
bagged a total of 20 points while the best Ames could 
do' was to gather (>. Drake proved not over-hard 
opposition the following night, being defeated 33-17. 

The next week the Wildcat squad took a trip to 
Iowa and played Grinnell, Ames and Drake. The 
game with Ames resulted in a 34-20 victory for the 
Aggies. The Drake Bulldog took the short end of a 
hard game that ended 28-24. Crinncll took a reef 
in the championship hopes of the Aggie squad. After 
a game full of thrills, neither team at any time having 
a substantial lead, the Pioneers finally nosed out a 
25-24 victory. 

, ) k lahon,a next invaded the Aggie camp and left the Wildcat squad thinking 
over a 35-23 defeat. Neither team played up to form and the game w as un- 
interesting. Page ,8o 










Missouri duplicated the feat performed by the Oklahoma squad and added 
another defeat the following Monday night, 28-24. 

On the next night, Grinnell came down with the intention of administering 
another defeat to the Corsaut men. But the visitors were doomed to disappoint- 
ment. For the first half the two teams battled on almost even terms. In the 
second period, however, long shots by Byers and short ones bv Bunker gave 
the Aggies a substantial lead which they held to the end of the game. The 
final score was 37-26. 

The following week the team journeyed to Lin- 
coln with the intention of retaliating upon the Ne- 
braska Huskers for the previous defeat. However, 
Nebraska was again master of the situation by a 
score of 30-20. The Husker quintet was the only 
team which could claim a double victory over the 

A great crowd, that packed Nichols gymnasium 
to the limit, was on hand to see the K. U. -Aggie game. 
The play was activated by the rivalry that exists 
between the two schools and it was not until the last 
few minutes of play that the Jayhawkers were able 
to pull out of danger. The K. U. defense was power- 
ful and held the Aggie scoring machine to 17 points. 
Ackcrman for K. U. played a stellar game and scored 
10 of the visitors' 27 points. 

The Aggie squad was successful in each of the 
three games on its final trip. The first game was with 
Oklahoma. Here the Aggies returned the defeat 
handed them at Manhattan. Byers and Bunker each scored seven goals from 
the field and were the high point men in the game, which ended 34-29. The 
Pikers at St. Louis were the next victims, being forced to take the short end of 
a 37-26 score. In the final game on the road the Aggies stopped off at Columbia 

and twisted the Tiger's tail for a total of 43 points. 
Tebow was at his best and scored 24 points. 

I The final game of the season was with Wash- 

j^^^Q ■■ ington University on the Aggie court. The game 

V»jh^^|U was . one °f tlle lastes t ever played in Nichols gym- 

LiAjl ^j nasium and held the crowd spell-bound. Long shots 

by Byers, two of them being from past the center 
of the court, and close work under the basket by 
Tebow were features of the game. Cox, Piker 
guard, held Bunker, who lacked only a few points, 
of leading the valley scoring, to three field goals 
and three free throws. The game, exciting through- 
out, was a fitting close to a successful season. 

Both years in which Coach Corsaut has directed 
the destiny of Aggie basketball, his teams have been 
noted for their driving finish. Last year after having 
enjoyed a meclicore season the players fought their 
Weddle wa y to victory in the last four games, thereby gaining 

an even break for the season. This year the team 
accomplished the seemingly impossible— defeated Oklahoma, Washington and 
Missouri on a long road, trip and then returned home and defeated Washing- 
ton in the final tilt of the season.

Freshman Basketball 

A MONG the yearling basketball candidates was an un- 
■"■ usual amount of good material. While there were no 
outstanding stars, the team under the coaching of Frank 
Root made noticeable advancement in passing, dribbling and 
shooting. Almost daily scrimmages were held with the Var- 
sity and many times the Frosh scored more heavily than did 
Varsity five. 

After the end of the season Coach Corsaut took charge 
of the squad and started building the machine for next year. 
For the benefit of the visitors and basketball teams here for 
the Kansas high school sectional tournament, the Frosh and 
first string Varsity played an exhibition game, which the 
Varsity had some difficulty in winning, 25-27. 

For the first time in the history of the school the athletic 
board voted to give numerals to freshman basketball candi- 
dates who could qualify. Ten men survived the cut and received the award. 
The outstanding men on the squad were R. R. Osborne, G. B. Discus, G. J. 
Davidson, A. R. Edwards, R. E. Haskard, F. L. Hawkins, J. C. Hopkins, E. H. 
Mertell, J. F. Price and A. D. Lovett. 

Each year the basketball material increases and now with the granting of 
basketball numerals to freshmen, Frosh basketball is on a par with football. 
The team showed ability to progress and willingness in co-operation. Much of 
the success of the freshman team is due to Coach Frank Root who tutored 
the squad.

Review of 1924 Track Season 

THROUGHOUT the season of 1924 the Kansas Aggie track squad was characterized by a 
few outstanding stars rather than by a well balanced team. Such men as Captain L. E. 
"Red" Erwin, Ralph Kimport, and John Gartner were fairly consistent point winners in all 
the meets, including the Kansas relays, the Drake relays, and the Missouri Valley conference meet. 

Ten men performed sufficiently well throughout the season to be awarded letters in the sport. 
These men were Captain L. E. Erwin, Ralph Kimport, Ken- 
neth Knouse, John Gartner, August Balzer, Fred Brunkau, 
E. E. Coleman, H. A. Brockway, Norman Roberts, and 
Phillip Carter. Due to the stiff requirements for a letter 
there were several other men who did not receive awards but 
who displayed considerable ability. Among these were 
Lyle Munn, shot putter; H. D. Sappenfield, sprinter; Art 
Doolen, hurdler; Charles Logan, hurdler; and several others. 

The team made an average showing during the indoor 
season. It engaged in no dual meets but confined its attempts 
to the K. C. A. C. meet, the Illinois relays and the indoor 
Missouri Valley meet. Erwin, Kimport and Balzer were 
point winners in these meets. 

The outdoor season opened with the Kansas relays held 
at Lawrence in April. Here Erwin succeeded in winning the 
100-yard dash, the medley relay team made up of Kimport, 
Knouse, Brockway, and Coleman won third, and John 
Gartner placed fourth in the discus throw with a distance of 
129 feet 6 inches. This throw broke his own Kansas Aggie 


At the Drake relays on the following week end Erwin took second in the 100-yard dash and 
the four-mile relay team placed fourth. 

The first dual meet of the season with Kansas University went to the Jayhawkers by a 62 
to 50 count. Each team won seven first places but Kansas took ten second places while the

Aggies gained four. First-place winners were Erwin, Carter, Gartner, Balzer, and Kimport. 
Erwin won both dashes and Kimport the half and the mile. 

The next week end Missouri met the Wildcats on Stadium field and won the meet by a 67 
to 45 score. Erwin won both dashes, Knouse the quarter-mile, Kimport the mile, Brunkau the 
javelin, and Kimport and Coleman tied on the half mile. 

The losing streak continued the next week end in the dual meet with the Nebraska Corn- 
huskers. The final score was 78-39. The features of this meet were the two clashes between 
Erwin of the Aggies and Locke of Nebraska. Erwin won both the events but he was forced 

to exert his utmost speed to win. The time in the 100-yard 
dash was 9 4 / 5 seconds and in the 220-yard dash 20.9 sec- 
onds. This last time broke the Missouri Valley record for 
the distance. 

The Valley meet held at Lincoln on the following Friday 
and Saturday was a disappointment to the Aggie fans. 
Only three men, Erwin, Kimport and Gartner placed 
in the meet. Erwin was defeated in both the 100 and 220 
by Locke in much slower time than was exhibited by the 
two on the preceding week end. Kimport was forced to do 
his utmost in the mile in order to take third. Gartner threw 
the discus 129 feet for a third in that event. 

The team this year lacks a competent sprinter since 
"Red" Erwin's graduation last spring. However there were 
a number of good freshmen developed and the team shows 
promise of being a winner in the dual meets this year.

THE Wildcats opened the season by dropping a 
close game to the St. Mary's nine, 3-2. Two 
errors and a hit gave St. Mary's the game. 

The Aggies started the scoring in the third 
inning. Staley singled to right field and Ernst 
lined out a drive to center field that was good for 
three bases. With one out, Captain Aikins scored 
Ernst from third base. This ended the scoring 
for the Wildcats. 

St. Mary's came back strong in the sixth frame 
and tied the count when they connected with a 
couple of hits and two walks. 
In the ninth inning, two 
errors by the Aggies and 
a timely hit by Mehren, 
St. Mary's right fielder, gave 
the Catholics the winning 

Conroy, who started in 
the box for the Aggies, worked 
well until the sixth, when 
he weakened slightly and 
allowed the Catholics two 
hits and two walks. Cun-

for Conroy, held the St. 
Mary's batsmen hitless un-

ning run was driven in after

Only nine hits were gathered from three pitch- 
ers, the Aggie hurlers allowing five and McEvoy 
of St. Mary's allowing only four. 

Just for luck, 13 men made the trip to Okla- 
homa, where the Wildcats were to play their first 
1924 Valley game. 

The first game, with Henry Karns pitching for 
the Aggies, was a close one and was won by Okla- 
homa in the lucky seventh, when two men were out.

Until the seventh frame the score was two and two. A walk and two hits, 
both for extra bases, won the opening game for the Oklahomans by a count of 
5-4. The Aggies bunched hits off the Oklahoma hurler in the fifth inning and 

drove in two runs, but after that they were held at 

The following day the Oklahomans showed 
signs of going after a Valley championship and 
pounded two Aggie hurlers for 10 runs. The best 
that the Wildcats could do was to score one run. 
Only four hits were made off the effective hurling 
presented by the Oklahoma moundsman. 

The handicap of a 13-man squad proving too 
much for the Aggie team, N. S. Barth, Aggie right 
fielder, who had been quarantined for the mumps 
and had been out of the 
lineup for the first three 
games, joined the team at 
Kansas City and broke into 
the game at Missouri. 

With Conroy pitching, 
the Aggies played good ball 
and won their first Valley 
game from Missouri by a 
score of 5 to 3. The hitting 
of the Wildcat squad was a 
feature, but poor base-run- 
ning held down the score. 
But the Missouri Tiger took 
sweet revenge to the tune 
of 9-0 the following day. 
Henry Karns was the vic- 
tim for the second time on 
the trip. The Aggie batsmen 
were unable to connect with 
the offerings of Missouri's 
hurler and failed to score. 

Heady baseball, timely hitting and good pitch- 
ing, coupled with numerous Jayhawker errors, 
enabled the Aggies to turn in a double victory against 
Kansas University. 

Bernard Conroy was almost invincible in the 
opening game. Only 25 Kansas batsmen faced him 
in the first eight innings and he allowed but one hit. 
In the ninth frame he was touched for two hits, 
which scored the lone Kansas run. The Aggie 
swatters hit Davis, Kansas hurler, frequently and 
scored four tallies. 

Cunningham, who pitched the second victory,

Page 104 

4-2, for the Wildcats, was effective in the pinches and allowed but six hits. 
Kansas scored two runs in the second inning, but after that Cunningham had 
things his way. The work of the Aggie infield and a perfect throw by Aikin 
from deep center to home plate, which cut off a Kansas 
tally, were features of the game. 

The Aggies then journeyed to Lincoln and split a 
double bill with the Huskers. In the first game the Ne- 
braskans scored three runs before the Aggies got started. 
Then Conroy tightened and stopped the scoring. With 
a three-run handicap staring them in the face, the Aggie 
sluggers in the fourth inning bunched hits off Lewellen, 
Nebraska captain, and scored three runs. Two more 
runs were added in the fifth. For the rest of the game 
both pitchers kept the hits scattered and neither 

team showed scoring strength. 
The second game was a 

hectic affair. Both pitchers 

were hit hard and the teams 

scored often. The Aggies scored 

four runs in the fourth inning 
— ^ by virtue of three triples and 

lir<*j*\ three singles. 

In the same inning, the 

Huskers, determined not to be 

outdone by the Aggies, batted 

in five runs off Cunningham. 

In the next two innings the 

Nebraskans increased their lead 

to five runs.

ever, a drive by Henry

Conroy then replaced Karns, but the Huskers were 
not to be stopped, and scored the winning run in the ninth. 
Not satisfied with splitting a double bill with the 
Aggies at Lincoln, the Nebraskans journeyed to Man- 
hattan the next week and took two more games. Both 
games were played on Saturday and were seven-inning 

Vohs hurled the first game for the Aggies. At the 
end of the sixth the score stood 1-1. In the seventh in- 
ning, after two men were out, Dame Luck smiled on Ne- 
braska. Two hits and three errors netted the Huskers 
four runs and decided the game.

His arm turned 
many victories. 



The second game, with Henry Karns pitching, was a 6-3 victory for the 
Huskers. Nebraska showed hitting power and bunched hits in two innings, 
when they scored their six tallies. The Wildcat hitters were unable to do more 

than touch the fast ball of Lange, Nebraska hurler. 

Minus Captain Aikin, who broke an ankle in 
practice, the Wildcats met the Haskell Indians and 
sent them home to think over a 7-0 defeat. 

Conroy again was master of the day. Although 
he was touched frequently for hits, they were not 
bunched, and the Redskins were unable to gather a 
lone tally. 

The feature of the game was the hitting of the 
Karns Brothers, who together made seven of the 
ten hits with which the Aggies were credited. 

It took ten innings to de- 
cide who would be the victor 
of the first game between Mis- 
souri and the Wildcats here. 
The Aggies emerged, by the 
aid of the loud yelling crowd, 
on the long end of a 5-3 score. 

The Missouri squad bump- 
ed Cunningham for a number 
of hits and three runs in the early 
innings. In the seventh frame 
the Wildcats connected, and, 
by the aid of a Missouri error, 
scored two runs. In the tenth 
inning two more runs were add- 
ed and the game was won. 

Missouri got an early lead 
in the second game of the series. 
In the seventh inning the Ag- 
gies pounded in two runs. Mis- 
souri in the eighth inning found 
the offerings of Conroy easy 

and hit in two more runs. The Score was again 
tied, after the Aggies had batted in the eighth, a 
blow by Harter, who acted in the role of pinch-hit- 
ter, being the main factor. 

In the ninth inning, Conroy hit Denny, putting 
him on base. Two hits then gave the Missourians 
two runs. The Aggies were unable to come back 
in the home half of the ninth, and lost 7-5. 

The next week Oklahoma came to Man- 
hattan and lost her chances of winning a title 
when the Wildcats took two close games. Hen- 
ry Karns pitched the first game, a

tory. Paul Vohs then repeated in the second game, with a 1-0 victory. 
Both games were exceedingly close and interesting and good, heady baseball 
was played by both teams. 

A number of double plays by the Aggies were 
timely and aided in keeping down the Sooner score. 
A long hit by Rex Huey drove in the winning run in 
the last game. 

The Aggies ended the season with a clear-cut vic- 
tory over Kansas University, 2-0. It was the third 
defeat of the Kansas team by the Aggies during the 
season. The next day a heavy rain saved the Jay- 
hawkers from what might have been a fourth defeat. 

Although most of the regulars of the team were 
lost through graduation, Coach Corsaut was able to be 
optimistic about the success of the year 1925. With 
perhaps the best freshman team in the history of the 
school from which to fill the depleted varsity ranks, 
everything pointed to another successful year. 

In addition to a good team, Aggie fans were prom- 
ised a new field with the starting of the 1925 season. 
The new diamond is located west of the Engineering 
building and when fully seasoned will make an excellent 
playing field. 

The greatest drawback to Valley- baseball has been 
the fact that it has not paid for itself. With the sport proving a success finan- 
cially it undoubtedly will attain the position among college athletics which it 
rightfully should hold.

DEFEATING Kansas University, Missouri, and Nebraska in dual meets and winning the 
Missouri Valley championship in the Missouri Valley meet, held at Des Moines were the 
achievements of the 1924 cross-country team. 

In the first race of the season the Aggie Harriers met the Kansas University team at Man- 
hattan on Dad's day. The race was an easy victory for the Aggies, 18-37. 

The team next met Missouri University at Columbia. The course there was run over the 
golf links, which was an ocean wave affair, that made fast time impossible. Kimport and Sallee 
again, as in the race with Kansas, tied for first place. The score was 26-29. 

In winning the Valley meet, the Wildcat team broke the string of 11 consecutive victories 
run up by Ames. In this meet eight teams— 48 men— were entered. Of the first 10 men to 
finish, four were Aggies. Kimport, Sallee, Aikman, von Riesen, Rutherford, and Axtell finished 
second, third, seventh, ninth, seventeenth, and twenty-fifth, respectively. 

The last meet of the season was with Nebraska at Manhattan on Homecoming Day. A 
record crowd saw five Aggies place among the first six men to finish. Kimport won first place 
in the fast time of 24 minutes and 37 seconds. 

Cross-country running was introduced by Coach Bachman in 1920 and has developed strength 
as an inter-collegiate sport each year. This season a squad of about 50 men reported consistently. 
Next year the team will have an excellent chance to win the Valley championship again, as Cap- 
tain von Riesen is the only man lost by graduation. Regulation sweaters, with the monogram 
"cKc" were awarded to the six men of the team and gold track shoes were given them by trie 
Athletic Board in recognition of the ever-victorious season.

WRESTLING enjoyed a rather mediocre season 
during the past school year. Lack of adequate 
coaching and scholastic ineligibility prevented the team 
from making an outstanding showing. This is the third 
year that inter-collegiate wrestling has been in exist- 
/ ence at K. S. A. C, but a team comparable to others 

in the Missouri Valley has not been developed as yet. 
Only two men performed sufficiently well throughout 
the season to win letters. These two were Captain O. 
E. Walgren, featherweight, and Zurlinden Pearson, 

Several matches were tentatively scheduled for 
the team, but only one dual meet with the University 
of Kansas and the Missouri Valley conference meet took 
place. Matches were proposed with the Colorado Ag- 
gies and with Denver University, but were not contested 
because there were not enough men in training who pos- 
sessed sufficient ability to form a representative team. 
Capt. Walgken In the dual meet with Kansas University one match 

was won by the Aggies and the remainder by the Jay- 
hawkers. Z. Pearson won a decision over the University grappler and annexed 
the Wildcats' lone point. The other matches were close, however, and were lost 
in several cases through inexperience. 

Walgren, Hinz, Pearson and Frazier were scheduled to compete in the 
Missouri Valley meet at Lincoln, Neb., but Pearson was unable to wrestle. He 
sustained a bad cut over his left eye in a boxing match on the night preceding 
the Valley meet and did not make the trip. Frazier wrested in a special class,

ALTHOUGH boxing as a minor sport was insti- 
tuted at K. S. A. C. only this year, its unusual 
popularity with the student body and townspeople 
will undoubtedly make it the premier minor sport in 
the future. Only one contest, that with the University 
of Kansas, was held in Manhattan, but the bouts at- 
tracted a crowd of almost 2,000 persons. 

The Wildcats engaged in three dual meets during 
the progress of the season. They were defeated by 
Ames by a 6 to 1 score, they lost to K. U. at Lawrence 
by the close margin of a 4 to 3 count, and then in the 
final meet of the season conquered the Jayhawkers by 
the same score the University battlers had acquired 
in the previous bout. 

Five men won at least one bout in one of the three 
contests and were awarded letters. They are Captain 
C. F. Hoelzel, 145 pounds; O. E. Walgren, 115 pounds; J. 
A. Stewart, 125 pounds; F. T. Rose, 135 pounds, and 
Zurlinden Pearson, heavyweight. Other men who 

boxed in meets but who did not win letters were: H. E. Miller, 135 pounds; 
Purcell, 140 pounds; S. Farrell, 158 pounds; S. Tombaugh, 175 pounds, and 
S. Guthrie, 175 pounds. 

The most outstanding performer on the team was Zurlinden Pearson. Pear- 
son won his matches in all three meets through the knockout route. 

The prospects for next year show the team to be almost of championship 
caliber. All men who were awarded letters will be able to compete at least one 
more season.

A QUATIC sports at K. S. A. C. during the past 
^L •*■"- winter were less successful than they have been 

for several years. This failure to make an outstanding 
record was due in part to the graduation last spring of 
three of the best swimmers in the Missouri Valley, 
Burton Colburn, Joe Mackay and "Mickey" Magiil. 
The swimmers engaged in two dual meets and the 
Valley conference meet. They tied the Huskers, 
34-34, were overwhelmed by Washington University, 
57-11, and took fourth place in the Valley meet. In 
the Washington contest the St. Louis swimmers broke 
every Missouri Valley record in all events except one, 
this fact indicating an exceptional team at Washington 
Capt. Miller rather than a poor team at K. S. A. C. 

The dual meet with Nebraska was very close, all 
the events being won by small margins. Although the score was tied in points, 
the meet was awarded to Nebraska because the Huskers annexed first place in 
the relay. 

The relay team, made up of L. C. Miller, P. R. Carter, J. V. Eastwood and 
A. Lippincott, won fourth place in the Valley meet and Miller placed fourth in 
the backstroke. Miller's time of two minutes ten seconds was three seconds 
faster than the former record. The winner's time was two minutes seven sec- 

Five men performed sufficiently well to win a minor sport letter in swimming. 
These were Captain L. C. Miller, fancy diving, backstroke and relay; P. R. Car- 
ter, fancy diving and relay; J. V. Eastwood, backstroke and relay; A. Lippincot, 
relay, 40 and 100-yard free style, and T. Long, plunge.

BECAUSE of its comparative newness as an inter- 
collegiate sport at K. S. A. C; tennis fared very 
poorly last spring. Several matches were scheduled 
and played although none were won. The lack of 
players who could hold their own with those of other 
Missouri Valley schools was not due to a scarcity of 
ability to to insufficient training facilities, a deficiency 
which has been remedied this year. 

Five men played for the Wildcats in the various 
matches throughout the season. The leading players 
were Captain Wann and William Rankin. The other 
players were F. C. Healea, Wallace Goodell and E. 

Matches were played with Missouri, Baker, Okla- 
homa and Kansas. The first match of the season 
against the Tigers in Manhattan was won by the in- 
vaders by decisive scores. The singles matches were Capt. Wann 
both won by M. U. players. These two players in the doubles also conquered 
the Aggies. 

The next games were played with Baker. The Methodists made a clean 
sweep in both singles and doubles. 

Oklahoma was the next school to keep the Aggies in the lost column. Four 
singles matches were played, all of which went to the visitors. The Southerners 
easily annexed victory in the doubles match. 

The University of Kansas was encountered twice during the progress of the 
season, once at Manhattan and once at Lawrence. Tn both matches, however, 
the Jayhawkers easily annexed the long ends of the scores. The singles in the 
first contest were won by Kansas, 6-1, 6-2, and 6-4, 6-3. The doubles were won 
by the same men, teamed together, by a 6-1, 6-2 count. The singles and doubles 
in the second contest were won by the Kansas players by almost idential scores.

sical Education 

E. A. Knoth 
Head of Physical Education and Coach of Minor Sports 

INCREASED interest was established in the Department of Physical Education by allowing 
all the freshmen and sophomores to choose one of several branches of training given by the 
department. Students now have the choice of entering classes in boxing, wrestling, tumbling, 
door work, beginning swimming, advanced swimming, and Red Cross. Because the student has 
the choice of physical education he wishes, attendance in classes has greatly increased and a higher 
grade of work is being put out by the department. From the boxing, wrestling, and swimming 
classes, men usually are developed who later represent the college in minor sports against Missouri 
Valley schools. 

Intramural athletics, which in the past few years have been handled by Prof. E. A. Knoth, 
have become exceedingly popular. The idea of intramural athletics is to provide some form of 
sport and exercise for the majority of students who in no other way can take advantage of the 
athletic equipment of the college. This year in addition to basketball, tennis, swimming, indoor 
track, cross-country, baseball, and handball, three new sports, bicycle racing, horseshoe pitching, 
,,,!. I basketball free-throwing were added to the list of intramural sports. 

A large silver cup is offered to the organization who at the end of the year has made the most 
points in the various branches of athletics. The cup becomes the permanent property of the 
organization winning it three years. 

Intramural sweaters with a small "K" enclosed in a circle arc awarded to the ten individuals

"K" women are those who have won Ihe required number of points for an Old English "K" 
sweater. This "K" means as much in women's athletics as does the block "K" in men's athletics. 
The white sweater, upon which the letter is worn, is presented by the W. A. A. although the girl 
pays one-half the cost. 

A girl can win only one "K" sweater, although she may add to her sweater a chevron for each 
additional 200 points and a star for an additional 800 points. The standard of points first set 
was 800, but now has been raised to 1200, beginning the fall of 1925, having increased the require- 
ment by 100 points each year since 1923. The candidate must also swim once around the girls' 
pool, which measures about 150 feet. This increase in points, of course, will mean that possibly 
l here will be fewer "K" sweaters awarded, but the calibre of girl behind the "K" will be raised. 
Only a "K" woman is eligible to Ihe office of president of W. A. A. 

The girls who wear the "K" sweaters are 1 he leaders of athletics at this college. They stand 
for gin id sportsmanship, leadership, constructive co-operation and creative interest in gymnasium 
work, promoting high efficiency in physical education for women.

1H)HYSICAL education is more and more becoming an essential 
■K- and interesting activity for the women students of K. S. A. C. 
We wish to express our thanks to Dean Willard, who five years ago 
made physical education compulsory for women. It may be that 
we groan about having to take it, but after all, the majority of the 
nine hundred and some girls taking physical education enjoy it. 

Where do we put nine hundred and some girls? We have one 
fair-sized gymnasium, a swimming pool and a medium-sized dress- 
ing room. Classes are held in all three places as well as outdoors 
and in the "K" room. We hope it doesn't disturb the men's gym 
classes when we run down the track in our dancing costumes to the 
"K" room. 

Every year before entering the classes each girl must have her 
heart and lungs examined. If she is a freshman or a new student she 
has a thorough physical examination. If she has any physical defects, 
abnormalities, or other weaknesses, she is enrolled in a corrective 
gymnasium class. There she is given individual exercises for her par- 
ticular weakness. 

The women who have patiently and carefully coached athletics are: 

Miss Ruth Morris, University of Wisconsin, head of the depart- 
ment, who coaches hockey and archery, and instructs in clog dancing. 

Miss Myra Wade, Oberlin College, who has charge of the cor- 
rective gym work and interpretive dancing. She also coaches tennis 
and baseball. 

Pane 2oq 


Women's AtIiletics===Contniuedl 

Miss Geneva Watson, University of Chicago, who is the best basket- 
ball coach we have ever had, also coaches track and tennis. It might 
be said that character dancing is her hobby and she has interested 
many girls in that line. 

Miss Laureda Thompson, student assistant, who devotes her 
time to the sports with special emphasis on her Red Cross Life-Sav- 
ing Class. 

There are many subjects offered so that each girl may choose 
the sport she likes best. Besides the regular gym work of march- 
ing tactics and floor work, there is the game of hockey. It may seem 
like shinny to some of those who watch, and we admit that on that 
field of check holes and long grass it often isn't even good shinny, 
but it is a good game and is one sport which gives more girls an op- 
portunity to take part. 

Then, too, there is basketball, played with six players on the three- 
court plan. Due to previous high school experience, the girls make 
a better showing in playing basketball than in any other sport, and 
lots of keen competition develops for places on the teams. 

And swimming, the favorite sport formerly monopolized by the 
boys, is popularized by the girls with the result that the swimming 
classes are always full. An interesting class in Red Cross Life-Sav- 
ing was introduced this year and has progressed nicely. There are 
two other series of tests for which a girl may compete — Red Cap and 
Blue Cap — varying respectively in difficulty and endurance. The 
girls' swimming meet is handicapped for enthusiasm due to the lack 
of facilities for handling spectators, but nevertheless it is the impor- 
tant event in the swimming year. 

In the spring, baseball classes are crowded. Some of us can pitch 
quite as well as the boys and can even knock three-baggers! This 
again offers an opportunity for many contestants. 

1( is always amusing to have spectators come down to the arch- 
ery field and stand around with that "Let me show you how to do it" air. 
When given the chance, they find that even though the target seems 
as big as a barrel, it isn't so easy to hit the bull's-eye after all. But 
archery is a dandy sport and we are getting in practice for leap year in 

Track is immense fun, though with the meagre improvised fa- 
cilities we can not expect to set many records, but hurdles, dashes, javelin 
throwing, high jump and broad jump are given due attention. 

i'agi 210 

This year the tennis classes have been open only to the best players 
because of the few available courts and therefore there can not be 
any beginning or intermediate classes. 

The dancing classes are not to be forgotten. There are some 
folks who can best express their abundance of energy by interpreting 
music in movements, in other words, dancing to their own imagina- 
tions. This is interpretive dancing. Character dancing and clog- 
ging are also very popular. 

This year a new enterprise was launched. It is the first time 
there has been Women's Intra-Mural competition. An Intra-Mural 
volley ball tournament proved a success, the Alpha Theta Chi soror- 
ity claiming the silver loving cup presented by the W. A. A. to the 
victors. This cup becomes the permanent property of the organiza- 
tion winning it three years in succession. 

It is through the earnest efforts of our instructors that we hope 
to have a regular accredited four-year course in Physical Education 
at this college beginning the fall of 1925. We would like to have rifle 
teams, fencing, horseback riding, soccer, and the educational meth- 
ods of teaching physical education, anatomy, and kinesiology. A 
women's field for hockey, baseball, track, archery, and other sports 
would complete a perfect physical education course. 

But considering our cramped quarters and inadequate facilities, 
we are proud of our showing.

In order to give the hockey coach a chance to get a better line on the players so that she could 
the more easily decide who to place on the varsity hockey team, and also make the selection 
of the class teams easier, the system of having preliminary practices preceding any inter-class 
games was used again. The Seniors and Sophomores practiced on Monday and Wednesday 
nights and the Juniors and Freshmen on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Sophomore-Senior 7-1 (Soph) Freshman-Sophomore 1-6 (Soph) 

Freshman-Junior 1-1 Sophomore-Junior 2-2 

Junior-Senior 4-1 CJr) 

The Freshman-Senior games were forfeited both times, due to Freshmen lectures and the in- 
ability of the Seniors to get enough players out. 

The Annual Hockey Spread was held December 2 at the end of the season. The varsity 
hockey team announced at the spread was composed of: 

Marie Farmer Inez Jones Ida Conrow Elsie Bercstrom

selves. They placed one member on the 
varsity team.

Kansas State Agricultural College 
Manhattan, Kansas. 

My dear Sir; 

I am returning herewith the photographs you sent 
me, and enjoyed looking at them and selecting those I thought 
the best. I might add that I judged them photographically, 
and regret it if I have hurt the feelings of any of the young 
ladies. Not knowing their colorings, and good points, I could 
only judge from a flat picture. 

The young lady I marked as number one, I consider 
really very beautiful - and a good type. 

Thanking you for the privilege you gave me, I am 

Sincerely yours, 

Virginia Mmd&%i

pose of uniting in a closer relationship women students of journalism in various colleges and uni- 
versities throughout the United States. The fraternity strives to interest college girls in the pro- 
fession and to maintain ideals of good fellowship, productive writing and lofty ambition. It

itable work along practical as well as scholastic lines of journalistic endeavor.

Purple Masque 

HPHE ART of dramatization in the college has made a rapid advance in the past 
-"- decade. This has been due mainly to the increase in the enrollment in 
the school and the interest which the students show for dramatic work. The 
Purple Masque fraternity, organized in December, 191.5, from the K. S. A. C. 
dramatic club, is the nucleus around which all stage events center. Previous to 
the establishment of the organization, the literary societies had carried on the 
drama until the founding of Purple Masque under the direction of Prof. James 
G. Emerson, then head of the public speaking department. 

Every year the fraternity produces two major plays besides a series of the 
one-act variety. Numerous dramatic sketches, stunts and plays for extension 
work are sponsored by Purple Masque. On October 24, three one-act plays were 
presented at the college auditorium for the purpose of choosing new members 
for the organization. The casts for the plays were: "For All Time," Perry Thom- 
as, Birdie Von Trebra, Rebecca Thacher and Helen Vanquist; "Questioning 
Fate," Lynn Fayman, James Price and Agatha Tyler; "The Ghost of Jerry 
Bundler," Arthur Maxwell, Kingsley Given, Stanley Morse, Herman Higgins, 
Jean Conklin, Ralph Clark and Floyd Strong. 

On December 1-5, the fall play, "The First Year," by Frank Craven, was 
taken on the annual road tour and presented at Concordia, Clay Center, Junc- 
tion City, McPherson and Herington, respectively. The road trips have been 
found to be not only a success in giving the casts real stage experience but also 
to serve as an advertising medium for the college. Owing to an accident to 
Jack Kennedy, the male lead, "The First Year" was not presented in Manhattan 
until Janu ary 30, where it played before a packed house. 

Members of the cast were: Jack Kennedy, in the character of Thomas Tuck- 
er; Rebecca Thacher, Grace Livingston; Fred Voiland, Mr. Livingston; Lillian 
Kammeyer, Mrs. Livingston; Harold Sappenfield, Dick Loring; James Lansing, 
Doctor Anderson; Arthur Maxwell, Mr. Barstow; Betty McCoin, Mrs. Barstow| 
and Lois Grasty, Hattie. The players were accompanied on their play trip by 
Prof. Earl G. MacDonald, director; Melville S. Thompson, business manager, 
and Mrs. Eusebia M. Thompson, chaperone. 

The Purple Masque players represented K. S. A. C. at the annual national 
one-act play tournament held in conjunction with the convention of Teachers 
of Public Speech at Evanston, Illinois, December 29, 30, and 31, where they pre- 
sented "Fancy Free," by Stanley Houghton. The cast chosen for this occasion 
was: Agatha Tyler, in the part of Fancy; Rebecca Thacher, Delia; James Price, 
Alfred, and Kingsley Given as Ethelbert. 

The play selected for production by the Masque during Festival Week was 
"Captain Applejack." If the appreciation shown by the audience is an indica- 
tion, Captain Applejack concluded one of the most successful seasons the Purple 
Masque has experienced.

Inter=Collegiate Debate 

IT// 7 " S. A. C. completed this year the most extensive debate schedule 
-W-^° ever entered upon by men and women teams at thiss chool. 
Discussions were limited in freshman and women's debates to the Pi 
Kappa Delta question on the Supreme Court. The varsity men also 
used the Japanese question on their trip to the west coast. 

Aggie teams have participated in thirty debates this year. Of this 
number, 19 were decision contests and we won eight. The debates on 
the women's trip were with Baker, Ottawa, Missouri Wesleyan, Penn 
College, Simpson, Morningside and Cotner. The women as members 
of the Kansas Women's Debate League also met Emporia, Bethany 
and Washburn. A two-woman team met Oregon Agricultural College 
and a single-member team debated in Washburn chapel. 

The men's debates in the Missouri Valley were with Drake Uni- 
versity, University of South Dakota, University of Oklahoma and the 
University of Kansas. The freshman men's team debated Hays Nor- 
mal, University of Colorado and Bethany College. On the west 
coast trip the varsity men met Colorado Agricultural College, Uni- 
versity of Wyoming, Montana Agricultural College, University of 
Montana, University of Washington, Oregon Agricultural College, 
Leland Stanford University, University of Southern California, 
University of Arizona and the University of Texas. 

There is a possibility that next year the men's team will make a trip 
to eastern and southern schools. 

Prof. H. B. Summers has done all of the coaching this year. He 
had unusual success with the women's team, winning seven out of nine 
contests. The men's team won the debate with the University of 
Kansas, which was the first contest between the two schools. They 
also defeated the University of Washington while on the trip. 

One of the most interesting contests of the year was the chapel 
debate between the men's team from Oregon Agricultural College and a 
woman's team from K. S. A. C. The negative, upheld by Kansas, won 
the vote of the critic judge. 

There also will be a contest at the Pi Kappa Delta division meeting 
at Emporia at which women from K. S. A. C. will debate. 

This year has seen the development and extension of two new 
features of debating. Critic judges instead of the three-judge system 
have been widely used and extemporaneous debate has in a large 
measure supplanted the memorized speech.

Inter- Society Council 

TNTER-SOCIETY COUNCIL is composed of a group of literary 
-^ society members, there being a Junior and a Senior representative 
from each of the eight literary societies on the hill. 

This council was organized in 1918 by Dr. MacArthur, who felt 
that there was a need for some organization to establish and main- 
tain co-operation between the literary societies. Thus, through its 
different chairmen, it endeavors to uphold this standard throughout 
the year. 

In the fall a series of debates were held under the direction of the 
debate chairman. The result was that the Alpha Beta literary so- 
ciety won the cup offered to the society winning the final debate. 

The twenty-fifth oratorical contest was held this year on March 
7. Mr. Frank Morrison, representing the Athenian literary society, 
won first place. Second place was awarded to Geraldine Reboul, Io- 
nian, and third place to Alvin Ritts, Webster. 

The Athenians also were awarded the loving cup for having the 
highest number of points during the school year of 1923-'24. This 
point system is maintained by the council in order to stimulate interest 
and promote a friendly rivalry between the various societies. A cer- 
tain number of points are given for the activities, such as Glee Club, 
Purple Masque, Zeta Kappa Psi, Pi Kappa Delta, etc., that are repre- 
sented in the society. The other points are based on scholastic stand- 
ing, attendance, participation in debate, and other activities within the 
society. The organization obtaining the highest number of points 
receives the cup. 

On March 28 "Thank You" was given as the annual inter-society 
play, one of the most important activities of the literary societies. 
The cast was composed entirely of members from the different liter- 
ary societies who were chosen from those that participated in the try- 
outs. These try-outs were held under the supervision of the play 
chairman with the help of the public speaking department. The 
proceeds from this play are used to defray the expenses for the Ora- 
torical contest and other activities. Thus the council is a self-sup- 
porting organization.

The Alpha Beta Literary Society was organized October 17, 1868, and in December, 1870, 
a charter was obtained for ten years. At the expiration of the first charter, another one was 
obtained for a period of ninety-nine years. The society is a member of the "Intcr-Societv Ora- 
torical Association" and the "Debating Council." 

The society has met at the following places: Old building on College Hill; old chapel in 
the Armory building; north corridor of Anderson hall; room in south \u'ng of Andersen hall; 
Society hall in the basement of Fairchild hall, and in the present location in the northeast corner, 
third floor of Nichol's Gymnasium. In 192-1 the Alpha Beta and the Franklin Literary Societies 
began to hold meetings in the same room and this continues at the present time.

The Kappa Phi was organized at the University of Kansas in 1916 to form a closer asso- 
ciation among our Methodist women who are the students in the State and independent universi- 
ties; to make our work among student women of our denomination more effective and sufficient; 
to maintain a more serviceable organization to take care of our incoming freshmen each year, 
and to provide in a college woman's way religious training and wholesome social life, that we 
may be stronger, more efficient women of the church of Tomorrow. 
There are now fourteen active chapters.

The Wildcat's Claws 

Life is made bearable for the girls because of the existence in our midst 
of Cecil McCormick, Jack Eakin and Ky Blount. Cecil and Jack, who give the 
habitues of Johnnie's a treat with their exhibitions of the modern dances, Ky, 
the proud, disdainful man about town. 

Wall really doesn't deserve the name "Dissipation." She is on the hill to 
gain an education. 

Gone but not forgotten is Curtis Watts. Her nickname was "Cutie." 
She was said to have a temper — even at that she could still rate an occasional 
date with some of the younger boys on the hill. 

When mention is made of moustaches, the picture is immediately called up 
of Peter Piper, whose beautiful lip adornment is his pride and joy. Incidentally, 
Peter is a man of the great out-of-doors, open-throated woolen shirts being just 
another one of his little specialties. 

Blanche Hirl must have neglected her preparatory work at Fairmount. 
It was all a mistake about her passing two hours here the first semester — it 
was reallv three. 

The only rival to Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen is to be found in the 
person of Johnny Hale. Johnny doesn't frequent the links so very' much, but 
he leads all the boys in his dandy golf suit. 


Don Motter, the boy wonder, hit the hill with a bang this year. His mili- 
tary air was further heightened by long sideburns and deep blue trousers, said 
trousers cunningly striped with yellow. Don evidently was a corporal or some- 
thing at Fairmount. 


lean Frances Middleton — it's a sign of the elite to have three names — was 
back mi the hill this scar. Jean is very popular with the boys. Her car? Oh, 
yes, its a Packard. 

Page 366 

Page 367 

The pride and joy of the journalism department — Harold Sappenfield- 
that's Sap's idea of himself. He has a clever nickname. 

Edith Holsinger is in the thick of the social whirl, yet she looks fit and 
sound. Guess some of these sororities have good food. 

Manual Valdez, the earnest student from the land of chili, wine and black- 
eyed senoritas, has been a much subdued young man during the past year. Ru- 
mor has it that Manual had to sign pledges, oaths and promises in order to 
remain an undergraduate at K. S. A. C. He wasn't in danger of promotion 

The only living rival of Arthur Murray has been found on our own campus 
in the person of G. S. Wheeler, dancing instructor extraordinary. Wheeler 
doesn't possess a Ted Shawn physique, but his nimbleness on foot has won 
him a place in the heart of more than one fair co-ed on the hill. 

Maxine Ransom has taken journalism so long that she is a past master at 
that Spanish game we all know so well. She and Qui did just love to joke each 

We wonder if Johnny Costello and Eddie Durham ever got that sneak 
date fixed up at the Kappa house. Of course, Rushton Cortelyou had a car, 
and that helped some. 

The thing that is worrying everyone now is: Will Ralph Blackledge get 
back to school next fall and save Aggie rooting from utter destruction? 

It has been rumored that Harold Souders was the author of the artwork 
in front of Calvin hall at the time of its dedication. Anyway, Harold is an 
architect of no mean ability. 

And then there's Grace Weyer, slightly bored with life as it is. Grace 
is mi longer enrolled in journalism. 

We believe that Swede l.utz held out on us about his engagement for at 
[east a month. The manner in which he was attempting to swim in the foun- 
tain at the Scarab party indicated that something unusual was taking place.

On The Honor Roll 

K. S. A. C. chooses her best students every year and 
names them on her roll of honor. It is her recognition 
of work well done. 

In this school of several thousands a listing on the honor 
roll is a notable achievement. It means a claim to a 

High scholastic record 
Good character 

A similar honor roll may be cited in almost any field 
of endeavor — consider for a moment farm papers. In 
the Kansas farm field in 1924, Kansas Farmer led all 
media sold to cover the Kansas farm market. It was 

1st in Total Advertising 
1st in Commercial Advertising 
1st in Kansas Advertising 
1st in Kansas Circulation 

Kansas is a great state; K. S. A. C. a great school; and 
Kansas Farmer the farm paper.

Why should they show figures to

her out canoeing; she refused to
